In less than 7 weeks, WWE will mark 1,000 episodes of Monday Night RAW and a new '3-hour Interactive RAW' era begins. With RAW's ratings lower than WWE and USA Network are happy with, the company plans to go all out to ensure the milestone show is a success.

As previously reported, WWE has reached out to 20-30 legends to appear on the show. Additionally, a DX reunion (featuring Shawn Michaels, Triple H and likely other members) as well as a rare television appearance from the Undertaker are expected. It's also been rumored that we'll see the main roster debuts of one or more of Florida Championship Wrestling's top prospects.

WWE is especially concerned with drawing viewers to the first hour of the show. The first hour of special 3-hour RAWs typically a significantly smaller audience than RAW's normal time slot.

WWE is already getting in the habit of conditioning fans to tune in at the start of the first hour of a 3 hour show, with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon scheduled to conduct his job performance assessment of John Laurinaitis on next week's 3-hour show.

There has been talk of John Laurinaitis joining Vince McMahon's Kiss My Ass Club. With Vince returning on next week's 3-hour RAW from Hartford, Connecticut to do a job performance evaluation on Laurinaitis, this could be Vince's chance to induct him
I miss the kiss my ass club!

Officials are hopeful that The Undertaker appears at the event. If he does, it will likely be promoted weeks in advance rather than as a surprise.
He better be there, for fucks sake.

And if Ambrose doesn't debut either before or during this show, if it passes and he's still not on the roster...fpalm

They're going to treat it like a PPV? So, in other words, they're gonna treat it like any other episode of Raw?

The real question here is, how will 3 hour Raws be handled in the future?

And seriously, If Dean Ambrose does not debut I will lose my shit. Now is an excellent time to capitalize on this.

Every episode of Raw is not treated as a PPV, you don't have squash matches on every PPV but Raw has jobber matches on every Raw.

If Raw is becoming a PPV like show, squash matches need to go.

What PPVs have you been watching? Mania, ER and OTL all had squash matches.

Taker is available so there's no reason for him not to be there. This is the show for real star power, save your random rookies for the 3 hours filler shows after Summerslam. Edge also needs to be there.

Yep. If you look at my post history for a few months I've been saying Ambrose should and has to debut at the 1000th episode of Raw. It's a big episode, he has to make an impact on the biggest episode that they've had for a while. Taker should be there too, maybe he'll interrupt lesnar and HHH to plant the seeds for a Mania feud or something. He was on the first episode of Raw, and now he'll be on the 1000th, holy fuck that's a lot of episodes in between.

Exactly this.

Dean Ambrose and other FCW rookies can wait, 1000th RAW should contain mainly of huge stars, and maybe jus a few guys who have potential and are waiting for push long enough can be put over (like Ziggler, maybe Rhodes).

If it's 3 hours, why can't they have huge stars and promote new guys like Ambrose at the same time? :confused:

Nah, your post was pretty dumb.
